Looking for a men’s wedding band that won’t break and won’t break the bank? Consider an alternative metal for his wedding ring. These options are durable, comfortable, and for those concerned with metal allergies, hypoallergenic. Here are four alternative metal men’s wedding bands:
Got an active man in your life? If he’ll need something tough and attractive, try titanium. Two important notes: Titanium rings can’t be re-sized and they may show signs of wear over the years.
This is not ceramic as in the lovely clay pot you made at summer camp. Used by the space shuttle program and for ballistic protection (what guy wouldn’t think that’s cool?), this high-tech, highly scratch-resistant material combines the toughness of tungsten with the polished look of porcelain.
The bands come in various styles and colors, but black is a popular choice.
Ceramic men’s rings make a statement — a perfect pick for the stylish man who dares to be different.
Cobalt Chrome Bands
Cobalt chrome emerged a few years ago with a lot of points in its favor:
- Cobalt chrome wedding bands have the appearance of platinum.
- They’re harder than gold.
- More scratch-resistant than titanium.
- It’s a budget-friendly option. Perfect for the man who wants platinum without the platinum prices.
Actually a combination of carbon alloy and tungsten, the strength of a tungsten wedding bands makes it a popular choice. Unbendable and scratch-proof, tungsten rings are virtually indestructible (a theory some men more than others will put to the test). Another great “active man” alternative, tungsten does carry the burden of being a tad on the heavy side. And, like titanium, it can’t be resized.
